Does your machinist use a torque plate? Ensure a precision hone/bore job by using a 4G63 Torque plate next time you build your block!
Most people are unaware that honing a block without torque pressure around the cylinders can cause deformation of the cylinder walls once the engine is assembled. This can prevent piston rings from completely sealing, leading to scuffing of the cylinder walls, decreased piston life, and in some cases, a wasted block. If you've invested any amount of money into your build like most of our customers, the above circumstances are the last thing you want to happen.

In our years of experience working with Evo 8/9's and DSM's, high performing 4G63's are prone to cylinder distortion if not torque when machined. Do yourself a favor by installing this 4g63 honing plate during the boring process to ensure you're putting the same constraints on the block as you would during assembly.

Ask your machinist if they're using a torque plate while machining your 4G63 block. If they say no, send them to MAPerformance BEFORE they begin working on your block.
